Video available from Federalist Society program on Business & Professions Code section 17200

On May 19, 2010, I participated in a panel discussion presented by the Federalist Society.  The theme of the panel discussion was "California's 17200 -- Its Use and Abuse."  The panelists were:

  • Jeremy B. Rosen, partner, Horvitz & Levy
  • William L. Stern, partner, Morrison Foerster
  • Shaun Martin, Shaun Martin, Professor, University of San Diego School of Law, and,
  • me

The Hon Michael Orfield (Ret.), served as the panel moderator.

Video of the panel discussion is now available on youtube here.

It was an entertaining discussion.  There was some irony in the fact that the defense-oriented panelists argued for more government enforcement and the plaintiff-oriented panelists argued for less government enforcement and more private-sector regulatory enforcement.  Fun times.
